Health problems ground Japan's space tourist

Japanese entrepreneur Daisuke Enomoto, who was all set to hand over a bundle of money for a ride to the International Space Station, has been grounded after failing his health exam.

Many Japanese may be breathing a sign of relief at Enomoto's grounding, as he had been planning to dress as his favorie anime character while aboard the ISS. It's not known what his likely replacement, Iranian-born businesswoman Anousheh Ansari, plans to dress as.

If it's not too late already, a Trekkie has got to get into space before we—I mean they—get too old.

At least he can tell his grandkids about the time he almost made it into space.
